Contest Alert: Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler

Tempest Rising

Tempest Rising (Jane True, Book 1) by Nicole Peeler

368 pages, Urban Fantasy

$7.99 (Amazon.com, 09/30/09) Available for pre-order

Contest Info

Visit Nicole Peeler’s newly revamped blog. It looks amazing. And comment to win an ARC of her debut novel Tempest Rising. Ends 10/04.

My Thoughts

I’ve already read this. It’s a great read. My review will be posted closer to the publish date. If you’ve read and enjoyed Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series then you’ll probably enjoy this new series.

Summary (Nicole’s Website)

In the tiny village of Rockabill, Maine, Jane True—26-year-old bookstore clerk and secret night swimmer—has no idea that her absent mother’s legacy is entry into a world populated by the origins of human myths and legends.  It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: vampires are not quite what we think; dogs sometimes surprise us; and whatever you do, never—ever—rub the genie’s lamp.   For Jane, everything kicks off when she comes across a murder victim during her nightly clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean.  This grisly discovery leads to the revelation of why she has such freakish abilities in the water: her mother was a Selkie and Jane is only half human. With this knowledge, Jane soon finds herself mingling with supernatural creatures alternately terrifying, beautiful, and deadly—all adjectives that quite handily describe her new friend Ryu.  When Ryu is sent to Rockabill to investigate the murder, he and Jane fall hard for each other even as they plummet into a world of intrigue threatening to engulf both supernatural and human societies.  For someone is killing half-humans like Jane.   The question is, are the murders the work of one rogue individual or part of a greater plot to purge the world of Halflings?

Teaser Tuesday 2: Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater

Ballad

Nope, you’re not crazy! I’m posting another Teaser Tuesday for Ballad!

This one is thanks to the author, Maggie, who’s hosting a contest over on her blog! Contest ends September 17th.

All I have to do is post the tease! How easy is that?! Go forth and do it yourself! Either in a blog post or Facebook post.

He turned towards me. For a long moment, he stood facing me. I was held, anchored to the ground – not by his music, which still called and pushed against the music already in my head and said grow rise follow – but by his strangeness. By his fingers, spread over the ground, holding something into the earth, by his shoulders, squared in a way that spoke of strength and unknowability, and most of all, by the great, thorny antlers that grew from his head, spanning the sky like branches.

Then he was gone, and I missed his going in the instant that the sun fell off the edge of the hill, abandoning the world to twilight.

Here’s a list of the prizes (Maggie’s Blog post):

  1. A signed Shiver audio book.
  2. Another signed Shiver audio book.
  3. A CD of my Homicidal Faerie Mix — the music I played while writing Ballad

And incase you missed my actual Teaser Tuesday post, read it too!

You can pre-order Ballad on Amazon.com!

Let Maggie know I referred you!

If you do nothing else you MUST check out this awesome interview hosted by Kim at The Book Butterfly. She interviews Jessica Packwood of Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. She’s also hosting a contest to win a copy of the book and a t-shirt!

This is one of my favorite YA vampire books and Beth is an amazing author. I first saw her guest post at Wondrous Reads. Check that out too. And if you haven’t read Jessica’s GT Dating on the Dark Side, you should! Read my review if you missed it.

So, take a few minutes and enter for some awesome books! Don’t forget to mention I referred you! 🙂
